A man accused of slashing a police officer in the face with a knife is expected to apply for bail next month.

The charges came after police attended a property on Hillgrove St to serve the man with documents.
Hatzipapas allegedly lunged at an officer with a knife, slashing him across the face.
His partner discharged her firearm and shot the man multiple times in the abdomen.
Hatzipapas' matter was briefly mentioned in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Friday, where defence solicitor Terry O'Gorman said he had engaged leading forensic psychiatrist Dr Michael Beech to provide a report for the court after speaking to the 25-year-old.
He also indicated a bail application for the man would also be adjourned until that date.
